It may seem odd to want to visit a place to check out their funerals, but that's what people travel to this spot in South Sulawesi to see - Tana Toraja is famous for its unique hanging cave tombs, traditional Tongkonan houses with their boat-shaped roofs and elaborate funeral rites which include life size wooden effigies and lots of animal sacrifice. The funerals are a public affair though having a guide talk you through the culture is definitely helpful. There's also good trekking around here with beautiful views of hillsides and paddy fields.
